Information and photos of the best international pop-ups and their creators2019年12月10日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
In one handy volume, Kyra Hicks has carefully collected photos, descriptions, artist photos, and artist biographies that, together, create an astonishing quilt of the best in movable books. Lothar Meggendorffer was the 19th century paper engineer who set such a high bar for visual creativity and mechanical magic that artists today still look to him for inspiration. Since 1998 the Movable Book Society has awarded a biennial award named in his honor for the the best achievements in paper engineering. MBS Director Sean Sheehy opens the book with an overview, Ms. Hicks contributes a biography of Lothar Meggendorfer, Ellen Rubin (THE Pop-Up Lady!) covers the history of the awards, and then the fun begins: colorful photos, detailed descriptions, and lists of the winners, award runners-up, and all artists under consideration. It's noteworthy how many paper engineers, year after year, produce award-worthy work. Tucked in between the expected information are bonus insights from featured artists. In addition to details on the Meggendorfer Prize for Paper Engineering, similar information is provided for the MBS Outstanding Emerging Paper Engineer, the Meggendorfer Prize for Best Artist Book, and the MBS Lifetime Achievement Award. This book appeals to a wide audience: pop-up collectors, paper engineers, aspiring paper engineers, book artists, teachers, librarians, and all lovers of pop-up books.
Must-have for modern pop-up collectors2019年12月13日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
An inexpensive, but expansive view of each of the outstanding pop-up books that received the Meggendorfer Prize for the best pop-up created during each two-year period by the Movable Book Society. In addition to a short bio of the paper engineer and full color pictures of the winning book, an appended list names each of the prize finalists. Two other awards are noted and illustrated, one for an outstanding emerging paper engineer and another for the best artist book. Certain to be added to in years to come, this first edition covers the years 1998-2018. A must-have for contemporary pop-up book collectors.
